Written by Brother Yun’s son Isaac this book tells the story of his life and how he struggled with his life in China. He was raised by his grandmother as his father was in prison and his mother worked in the fields. He was exposed to a great Christian faith through his grandmother as she talked about Jesus to many house church meetings.
They realized that they would be unable to stay in China, so they moved to Burma and eventually they followed Brother Yun to Germany. It was in Germany that Isaac decided to become and evangelist and lead others to Christ..
The Author and His Family-
My thoughts- This book was eye-opening. I had no idea that China was so anti-Christian, if it was not state sanctioned.
I learned a lot about modern day China. I realized that I am ignorant about many things that are happening in this world. This book has helped me realize that I need to learn more about the world outside of my own.
My favorite person in this book was Isaac Liu’s grandmother. She had such a strong faith and no matter what she continued to go to people’s houses to tell them about Jesus. Isaac’s father was in hiding a lot and his mother worked in the fields, so I don’t think Isaac would have the faith in God that he does have without his grandmother. My favorite part of the book was the quote from his grandmother, “Much prayer, much power- little prayer, little power. Prayer equals power” (page 23). It was a statement I will always remember.
I would recommend this book to people from high school age and up. It is a powerful thought-provoking book that people need to read.
